New Product
THE WINGS MAKER TWM .... J11B twin EDF Chinese Fighter Jet

Looks nice and flies well. Looks are not all the way there (like their J10 and X35)....but it will look good for Park Flying.

Definitely not a park flyer. Its still using mechanical retracts and on landing the nose gear collapsed. That was on a rather perfect landing on pavement. Why was the landing cut short?

Kind of a combination of an SU-27 and Mig 29 wouldn't you say??
Looks like it flies well though...and its a nice size.
Wonder when it will be available???

If they are using TWM stock servos for those gear, that is problem #1....use a decent MG servo and things should be better....if not maybe some e-retracts will need to be fitted.

electric is the key, but also stiffer strut wires. For something that large, (5ft) why on earth would they not go larger on those retracts?

hmmm I wonder if by simply putting a longer nosecone it'll help to give that sleeker look of the SU/Mig....

Guys I own both the j-10 and x-35and to me these wingmakers are the best stock jets in edf flying the ducting on both jets are incredible not to metion the vertical is insane However I do recommend changing the esc to hobbywing 60amp platnum and add 4s 2700 45c this setup will keep battery cool and she will fly faster on stock setup I love these jets and recommend wing makesrs over any edf jet that's out there plus the foam is incredibly thick very sponge like and easy to put back to gether in crashes, im going to stop here cause i could go on and on about wingmakers jets

I have the X -35 and love it. Used Freewing F-35 decals to spiffy it up. On 4s, with an MB-1 its pretty darn quick. I know they get knocked on their looks but at least in the x-35's defense...its the eXperimental and not the F-35A version.

To each their own.

Chuck I was about to go on that same rant! My J-10 will accelerate out of my hand straight up at my altitude! (5200 ft) Not an easy thing to do here! Not many 70mm kits out there for this price and this quality, so I'm sure this new J-11 will be a great kit as well!

I'd never really heard much about wingsmaker till recently, seems so far that those that buy them are quite happy with them
My brother had Panther and wasn't really happy with it, had pitching problems but their other edf's seem like they sound ok
